Post-excavation analysis, led by Christine Rennie, of the results of a GUARD Archaeology excavation carried out in 2011 in advance of a housing development in Monkton in Ayrshire, has revealed evidence of intermittent human occupation of this landscape from the Mesolithic through the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age, right up into the medieval and post-medieval periods.

Archaeological investigations undertaken a few miles to the west of Edinburgh have revealed new insight into Early Iron Age settlement patterns in the central belt of Scotland.

A peat core taken from Ravelrig Bog, close to a number of later prehistoric settlements to the west of Edinburgh, contained palaeoenvironmental material spanning the entire Holocene period.
